  1. SPF: Benelli M4 Tactical Shotgun For Sale Benelli Model 11707 (fixed stock but tube will accept telestock) Urbino short stock. GG&G bolt release pad. GG&G bolt handle. Carrier Comp titanium magazine tube. Black Bore extended choke tube. Side shell carrier (All factory parts provided.) Purchased new in October 2010 and other than two or three trips to the range has become a safe queen. She deserves better. $1600 shipped to your FFL or $1550 face to face in Ohio. Looks just like all the rest of then but email me if you're interested in buying and would like to see specific photos of the shotgun. Email works best, I'm not on her every day. -- Chuck
  2. 15 yards (45 feet) unmodified M4 Shotgun. All 9 pellets well within the intended point of impact. Standing. In the snow on December 11 last year. Ya gotta aim a shotgun unless you're filming a Hollywood movie... Note shotgun pellets will penetrate walls of you miss. -- Chuck
  3. Function is paramount. As in actually shooting the critter with iron sights. I wish my mutual funds appreciated as much as the Benelli C-stock did the past six months! Anyway, beware of the mid length position if you intend to use the iron sights. See if you can find one with the stock mounted and test fire (or even dry fire). I was extremely disappointed as soon as I brought the shotgun up to my shoulder in ANY position. -- Chuck
  4. If you want to use the sights avoid the C-stock. For a "gee whiz" look and impressing the college boys at the range the C-stock is wonderful. Probably works well on the skeet range. The Benelli C-stock (telestock) is the fully extended position is waaaaaaaaaaaay too long for shooting anything other than skeet even in street clothing. (Fully extended it's the same length as the commercial fixed stock, which is also way too long.) Add a jacket or body armor and it's even longer. Close it to the middle position and the length is quite nice. The sights are, unfortunately, unusable in this position! I found this totally unsatisfactory and removed the telestock and fitted the Mesa Urbino which has the best pull length for me and allows use of the sights. Not as "kool" looking as the C-stock I admit. The photo shows the two stock lengths. The mid position of the C-stock is like the Urbino (right), but the Urbino stock allows the use of the sights -- a not inconsequential benefit. -- Chuck

  6. SOLD (before lunch...) Factory 3 position M4 C-Stock For Sale. New, perfect, never fired. In the interest of full disclosure the stock was removed from the factory box and mounted on my M4 for an afternoon in my family room, removed, and put back in the box. Never fired. $350 shipped CONUS. USPS money order only. -- Chuck
  7. Pretty sure you can ghost load the 8th round to get 8+1. -- Chuck
  8. What tells you they're reloads? Mil spec ammo is NOT shinny all over, the area at the neck is annealed and discolored. -- Chuck

    M4 Upgrades

    Note my target photos above. Please note the patterns are (1) round of a specific cartridge thru both chokes. I've been up to my butt in snow since before Christmas so there has not been time to confirm or deny the patterns with other ammo, or the same ammo on different days. This shotgun still has less than 100 rounds thru it. This is not an attempt to address grievances with BlackBore -- because there are none. -- Chuck

    M&P

    The M&P9 with 17+1 capacity makes an excellent defensive pistol and is especially good at home at night when you probably don't have a spare magazine pouch on your pajamas. The trigger can be improved from good to excellent with some Ace (brand) drop in parts and springs. Magazine safety? What magazine safety? This isn't standard. Unless you specifically buy the pistol with this "feature" it ain't there. Same for the frame safety. Either or both are removed in maybe 10 minutes time if you got the wrong pistol. -- Chuck

    M4 Upgrades

    Here's the BlackBore Tactical HD choke pattern at 25 yards: Here's the standard Bemelly M4 three-line choke at 25 yards: Winchester Ranger (RA12005) 00-buckshot, 1 oz slug. -- Chuck
  12. XM1028 Canister in the linked video is muzzle action. It is indeed a large "shotgun shell." The 90mm M580 and M546 105mm APERS-T (flechette, AKA "Beehive." AKA "Nails") tank rounds are fuse actuated and can be set for specific ranges. They are pre-set for muzzle action. APERS would put a lot of eyes out but the flechettes had little penetration as they had little mass (8 grains?) and lost velocity rapidly. The .40 caliber pellets are more effective. Novelty 12ga shotgun rounds are usually available filled with flechettes. Don't depend on them to stop hogs! -- Chuck
  13. These are shipped -- disassembled -- to the dealer in the factory box (as noted above). Choke tool is required and included (choke should be removed from time to time for cleaning). When I bought mine they opened the box, assembled it, let me fondle it while making my decision after which they asked me if I wanted it back in the box (which I did). They verified the serial number during that time. -- Chuck
